The best available Resorts to stay near Mahabalipuram

May 26, 2023 Tynisha Seiler

Just 45 minutes out of the city, the East Coast Road first stops at the historic town of Mahabalipuram. The 7th century erstwhile port city is famous for its rock-cut shore temples. A lone lighthouse on a hill watches over a group of temples below. Mahabalipuram also has some great cafes that serve good sea food. A backpacker’s delight, one can find cheap accommodations and plenty of activities.

An experience never felt before

Reviewed By Phil1521

Stay at Welcom by ITC was extraordinary from the time we arrived at the property till we left. It was warm, it was special. It was unlike the experience I had at ITC Kohenur in Hyderabad. I can say that Welcom by ITC is superior than kohenur coz of the way you are treated, luxury and amenities. The place has the best sea view room possible. I mean literally the best I have ever seen. Me and family and also my 7month son enjoyed staying at beach villa and sea suite. The beach villa is the best, especially the two rooms (I will not reveal the room numbers coz u gotta find ur way in for those two room) have a beautiful view of the sea. It’s refreshing and breathtaking and the best I mean the best view u can find in Mahabalipuram. Food spread in breakfast and dinner buffet were really delicious. The place is very calm, soothing and relaxing. The room service and staff is on another level. They are very professional, calm, very helpful. They are always available to help you out. Coming to Management, Mr.Piyush, the manager at the resort has taken care of us since the time we checked in. Not only that he took care of our reservations, he ensured that we get the best service and rooms. He exceeded the expectations. He treated us like family. Always smiling and ready to listen, ready to help and very welcoming and approachable. He is a gem. Mr.Rintu, welcomed us when step down at the resort. He had taken care of luggage loading and unloading, took us the rooms, showed the place. He was professional. He took of us during the checkin and check out (luggage loading, unloading, travelling to the rooms) The entire experience was one of a kind, special, memorable and will never forget the assistance I received from Customer care executive to Mr. Piyush and his team. They made my trip an extra ordinary experience. I wish I could share more but I would suggest to visit and experience luxury, being pampered. Thank you Mr.Piyush and Mr.Rintu and the entire staff and management of Welcom by ITC.
